New website. New employee. New office. TradeMoves is growing! In the past few weeks, a lot has been happening at TradeMoves.
First, TradeMoves has re-launched its website at www.trademoves.net which continues to highlight TradeMoves' TradeTips, located on a side-tab, on issues related to FTAs, exporting, trade tools, sourcing strategies among others. In addition, we have established TradeMoves' TradeBlog to share timely information and perspective from TradeMoves' associates on current trade issues which may affect movement of products across borders. Finally, the website is designed with a new format and look -- all with the same, high-quality trade advice and support that clients rely on and depend.
Second, we also announced earlier this month that our newest associate, Elena Aceves Fowlkes, has joined our firm. TradeMoves is pleased to welcome Elena to our trade services team as an International Trade Analyst.
Prior to joining TradeMoves, Elena worked at the US House of Representatives for members of Congress who were active in the formulation of trade policy. She also worked as a law clerk for a Baltimore-area attorney specializing in corporate affairs and immigration law. Elena’s background includes time as a Trade Fellow at a non-profit corporation engaged in trade policy advocacy and issues relating to corporate social responsibility, as well as experience with the US Department of Commerce’s Commercial Legal Development Program. Elena is licensed to practice law in the State of Maryland. She holds a Bachelor’s degree from Augusta State University and a Juris Doctor from the University of Baltimore School of Law, where she focused on business law and international commercial transactions.
"Elena's background in international transactions and her work to support commercially-meaningful trade policy complements the services TradeMoves provides its clients. We are delighted to have her on board to help TradeMoves' clients with their export priorities and trade initiatives," said Shawn Marie Jarosz, President of TradeMoves. Elena can be reached at EFowlkes@TradeMoves.net or at 240-242-8108.
Finally, we are pleased to announce that TradeMoves has moved. While we remain in the DC-Baltimore corridor, our new offices are now closer to DC and located in downtown Silver Spring.
"As exporting and moving goods across borders has become even more important to US companies, we knew it was time to provide ourselves flexibility to grow as we continue to serve our clients in their export initiatives," explained Shawn Marie Jarosz. "We are delighted to have established our trade advisory consultancy based on a reputation for delivering commercially relevant trade and customs solutions for our clients and, like our clients, have been able to grow our business."
In its sixth year, the company continues to serve clients to advance their international trade, customs, export and sourcing priorities. Let TradeMoves help your company grow and sell to customers in priority export markets. Contact TradeMoves at 240.242.8108.
